Centering On Action

Thom Yorke of Radiohead

So I noticed my website wasn't centered on our laptop. So I centered it.

I'm in the process of revamping my site, as always, doing it myself on my built-from-scratch site. Mostly I'm modifying the layout and navigation, but some content too, like yesterday with the "About Me" page. Today, I realized that my site is informative. That's great. But it doesn't have what they term a "call to action".

Apparently sales sites are supposed to lead the visitor to action. Who knew? Like, I'm supposed to show people where to go and what to do to buy my work? Sheesh.

So I'm working on it. I've got an idea for the homepage that'll hopefully be more clear but not too pushy/hard-sell-y/commercially. My friends at the Brentwood Art Center made bumper stickers that said "Buy Art Now!" I don't want to be that transparently blunt, but I want that to be the main option. Secondarily the focus'll be on my email newsletter and this blog, to keep people interested if they aren't going to buy a piece right away.

I think that's the strategy, right?

Absolutely stunning painting. What album was this painted on?

It's on Hail to the Thief. It'll have to be unframed since it's the second LP from the album. The first is stuck to the album cover.

Possibly one of my very favorites. I put this link on my blog today. =) I also downloaded Wings of Desire and the sequel as well and I plan to watch them today - thanks for the heads up.
